Why choose the All on 4 procedure ?

All on 4 dental implants replacement teeth do not fall out. Unlike removable dentures, dentures secured with four dental implants look, feel and function just like your natural healthy teeth when chewing food, talking, singing and of course kissing. They are durable, long-lasting and let you get on with your life and lifestyle without all the compromise and worry.

Permanent, secure, natural looking teeth 

Dental implants using the All on 4 procedure are permanent, stable and secure. They look and feel like natural teeth. There’s no need for dental adhesive and you don’t have to take them out for cleaning or at night.

Completed in just one session 

With just four implants placed into your jawbone, the procedure can be completed in one session rather than over a series of appointments. As this means less surgery time, there is less risk of anxiety and discomfort.

No need for bone grafting 

All on 4 dental implants take advantage of stronger bone at the front of the jaw and so there is usually no need for bone grafting – often an invasive, time-consuming and costly procedure.

How does the All on 4 procedure work?

The bone at the front of your jaw is denser and stronger. By placing two of the implants at an angle, all of the replacement teeth can be supported on just four implants with one bridge. The entire row of teeth is therefore supported by the strongest bone.

No dentures

Firstly, the four implants are placed with a provisional bridge meaning you won’t need to wear a denture during the healing phase. After the healing period, this is replaced by the final permanent bridge, which is made of acrylic or porcelain.

Award winning design 

The dental bridge is designed to look and feel just like natural healthy teeth and gums and is manufactured by our award-winning dental technician. 

Not enough bone density for All on 4 dental implants? 

If you do not have enough bone density in your upper jaw then you may still be able to benefit from the life-changing All on 4 dental implants procedure. We may be able to use zygomatic dental implants, which are extra-long and reach into the cheek bone to provide extra stability.
